Shooting photos in the midday sun…
It probably wasn’t the smartest idea. Professor M had to fiddle with the camera settings quite a bit to get the white balance right, and half of the pictures still turned out somewhat overexposed, with weird shadows on my face. Add time pressure into the mix, and this is what you get.
In other words, these photos were snapped really quickly, in 5 minutes, just before hubby and I had to catch the train…
But you know what, I sort of like them.
Yes, you can see it was a really bright day, and the shadows on my face are odd… What I mean is, I like the atmosphere in these photos.
They remind me of the photos (of myself) I like best. I know it sounds odd, but many of the blog photos I like the most were often taken in a hurry. Sort of point-and-shoot, ready or not… And because of that they’re somehow more real, less posed. Or less composed. And that’ the case with these photos, too. Which why I decided to post them, weird shadows and all…
And the dress?
I’ve featured this dress on the blog many, many times already… And I probably will feature it again, this summer and the next one. Because it’s a classic. The dress, I mean.
It’s a classic because it doesn’t date; it always looks good. And it can be accessorised endlessly. And it’s a very flattering style for me. It’s my go-to dress for days when I don’t know what to wear. Every woman needs at least one dress like that.
And this last photo, then?
Well, that was ‘Midday Sun Photoshoot, take 2’, about half an hour later, just before I had to catch the tram (to see my hairstylist, if you must know…). It wasn’t much better. The midday sun…
